BASKETBALL LETTERMEN ii sti- ROBERT VAN CAMP RICHARD DOUGLAS PAUL BRADY "Sammy," playing his second year on the W. L. varsity, was one of the Devil's trickiest forwards. Although his magician-like passing and drib- bling gained most of the attention, Bob was extremely accurate for the floor and a very reliable defensive threat. LAVERNE MARSH "Stoop," new to W. L. this year, formerly of New Albany, was the Scarlet's most dangerous threat this season. Laverne was the key man to the team's spirit and "pepper." Marsh's six foot, three inches were very essential to the Devil attack. It can be noticed that four of the West Side defeats were suffered when "Stoop" was out of action due to ill health. ROBERT RILEY "Horsey," closing his third year as Red Devil co-captain, was high scorer in the Scarlet lineup. On the hardwood, Riley is most dangerous from the foul line. Teamed with "Big Stoop," he gave the West Sid- er's a very potent scoring duo. The loss of Riley will present W. L. with quite a vacancy in athletics. l'AU H F1 DIRTY-SIX "Doug," co-captain of the West Sider's, was the only starter under the six foot mark. He makes up for his small stature in his demon-like speed, dribbling, "pepper" and ac- curacy on long shots. Dick was one of the best of the defensive men on the Devil team. GENE COLLINS "Dutch," the unsung hero of the Devil roster, proved himself a de- mon on defense. He made one of the most reliable players on the squad, by hard work at practice ses- ion. What Riley and L. Marsh are to the offense-"Dutch" is to defense. Quiet in voice, Gene pre- serves all his spirits for the games, where he really puts forth. WILLIAM VAN CAMP "Bill," redheaded cousin to Bob, is one of the most accurate shooters on the Devil brigade. Bill kept the "pepper" up on the bench while the regulars were in action. I-Ie proved his worth as a very reliable relief man early in the season. Paul, ending his basketball career this season, was one of the boys who rendered the West Side team much service during the season. His as- sistance to the regulars proved quite helpful, at times, to the Devils. The Scarlet's found Paul's eye quite an advantageous factor in their victory marches. CARLTON MARSH "Ned," accompanying his big brother, Laveme, out of the "Deep South," has shown that he is one of the best defensive netters in the game. "Pawnee" will return next year to "slay 'em" with his threats for good old W. L. PAUL FRIEND "Dufe," playing his second year as a reserve, is registered as one of the best guards ever to land at West Side. "Dufe" is sure to prove one of the main cogs of the 1939-40 model of the W. L. H. S. basketball ma- chine. WILLIAM COLE "Bill," with his advantageous six feet, is known as a defensive threat for the West Siders. It is certain that Bill will also be one of the "Guns" of next year's team.

RED DEVILS WIN OPENER BY 33-28 Lafayette, Nov. 30. The 1938-39 model of the Red Devil hardwood machine looked like a fairly well oiled mechanism, while they defeated the Remington quintet with little difiiculty, 33 to 28. Prom- ising offensive ability was shown by the Marsh brothers, Bob Riley and Bob Van Camp, although defensive play was a little weak during nearly the entire fray. West Side jumped into the lead with the first whistle and led throughout the entire game. The Scarlets held a 17 to 7 advantage at the half and were threatened only by a ten point rally in the third quarter that dwindled an eleven point lead to a three point mar- gin. Scoring honors went to Riley, who netted 14 points, while Bob Van Camp and Carlton Marsh annexed ten. SCARLETS BEAT BEAVER FIVE Lafayette, Dec. 2. Improved passing and defensive play gave the West Siders an easy vic- tory over Morocco's hardwood five, 43 to 27. The scoring was well distributed with the Marsh brothers accounting for eighteen points, while Riley and Bob Van Camp tossed in nine and six, respectively. Hill, Douglas and Friend played effective defensive games for the Red Devils, while Brady and Bill Van Camp both added to the relief rolls. W. L. FIVE COPS I THIRD DECISION Lafayette, Dec. 6. The Wolcott five threw a sufficient scare into the West Side camp before the Dailey charges nosed them out, 32 to 27. The West Siders didn't take the lead until the second quarter and it was a see-saw battle from then on with the Devils taking their final ad- vantage with only five minutes re- maining. L. Marsh's twelve points, combined with Riley's nine, made the larger part of the West Side score. while the rest of the Scarlets aided greatly with effective passing and bankboard play. TIGERS TAME WEST SIDERS The West Side Red Devils, greatly hindered without the services of "Stoop" Marsh, met their first defeat on their first visit to a foreign court, when the Lebanon Tigers came from behind in the last quarter to take the Lebanon, Dec. 9. decision, 36 to 29. The Scarlets, led by Bob Riley, who got 14 points, went into the lead at the beginning of the fray and held an eighteen to fifteen advantage at the intermission. This lead was overcome in the final stanza when a final Tiger drive enabled them to be the first to mar Coach Dailey's excellent record. RED VS. GREEN AS DEVILS WIN Veedersburg, Dec. 14. Following the theme song, "The Devil With the Devil Says Us," the Scarlets downed the Veedersburg Green Devils, 27-24 in a game that was made close only by the Veeders- burg rally in the closing minutes. The Red Devils, led by Douglas and Brady, who each grabbed eight points, led throughout the whole game, hold- ing a 25 to 16 halftime advantage, which dwindled under the pressure of the final Green Devil drive. SCARLETS SCALP CLARK PIONEERS Lafayette, Dec. 16. The Red Devils made their return- ing home, after two games away, a suc- cess by handing the George Rogers Clark Pioneers a 40 to 25 set back, after holding a 17-7 halftime advan- tage. Riley led the Scarlets with 22 points while Brady and Bob Van Camp added eleven to the total. Douglas and Col- lins played fine ball in their guard po- sitions on the defensive side, while boosting the score often. BOMBERS DEFEAT SCARLETS. 25 TO 23 Lafayette, Dec. 21. Poor shooting luck during the first half and radical passing throughout the fray were responsible for the second Scarlet defeat. The Red Devils, who only chalked up two field goals in the half, were victims of a 17-7 disadvan- tage at the intermission and the sec- ond half rally fell two points short to give the Rensselaer five a 25 to 23 decision. The Bombers went into an eleven to nothing lead before L. Marsh broke the ice for the Devils just as the first period ended. The Scarlet's final drive came in the last stanza when they out- scored the Rensselaer quintet nine points to two. "Nonnie" Marsh led the West Siders with eleven points, while Riley added six. RED DEVILS DOWN GERSTMEYER TECH Lafayette, Dec. 31. The Scarlet and Gray quintet cli- maxed the old year with a 39-21 vic- tory over the Gerstmeyer fTerre Haute! live, after leading only 16 to 14 at halftime and 24 to 19 at the end of the third period. The Devils' last quarter drive netted them a 37 to 19 advantage before the Tech five was able to score. Riley's 14 points combined with C. Marsh's 19 made up the larger part of the Scarlet score, while effective de- fensive games were played by Collins, Douglas and Friend. JEFFERSON DEFEATED BY RED DEVILS! Z5-IT Lafayette, jan. 4. The West Siders took a one game advantage over the jeff Bronchos for the 1938-39 athletic season by hand- ing them a 25-17 setback with reserves playing the entire final quarter. 13-5, 17-7 were the advantages at the end of the quarters. The scoring for the Red Devils was evenly distributed with L. Marsh and Riley getting 5 points a piece, while "Sammy" Van Camp grabbed four. The Scarlet and Gray defensive department, led by Dick Douglas, who held Jim Pechin to no score, played what was probably the best game thus far in the season. I' Xl' F l"l!H'l'Y-FIVE

' wh BRAZIL OUINIET DOWNS WEST SIDERS Brazil, jan. 6. Playing against the southem brand of slow basketball and slower officials, the Scarlet and Gray colors faded into pink and white under the pressure of a 24-22 setback at the hands of the Brazil Blue Devils. After leading 19 to 15 at the beginning of the final period the Scarlets fell behind with three minutes remaining in the fray. Paul Brady led the losers with eleven points, while the remainder of the scoring was evenly distributed.

Marsh with 14 points in the fight for scoring honors. "Dufe" Friend and Carlton Marsh added six points apiece, while Brady and Bob Van Camp played effective floor games for the Red Devils. DAILEY DEMONS DEFEAT DELPHI Delphi, jan. 13. Scoring half the points, "Stoop" Marsh led the West Siders to 28-26 victory over the Delphi Oracles after leading 19 to 12 at halftime. Along with Laverne's 14 points, Carlton shoved in six to give the Marshes 20 out of the Devil's 28. Riley, Brady, Collins and Friend furnished the re- maining count. The Scarlets led throughout the en- tire fray, holding a 11-2 advantage at the end of the first period and a 22-15 count at the end of the third stanza. With two minutes remaining in the contest the Devils were leading 28 to 18, when Long, of the Delphi quintet, pushed three "long" shots through and added a couple of free throws to give the game a thrilling finale. SCARLETS DROP BINGIES, 39-34 Lafayette, jan. 25. The Scarlets returned home after three games away and downed the Wil- liamsport Bingies 39 to 34, after lead- ing 21 to 13 at the intermission. The Bingies scored a free throw to start the tilt, but immediately lost their lead and never regained it. Riley led the locals with 17 points, while L. Marsh accounted for 12. Brady added five, while Douglas, Col- lins and Friend tossed in the remain- der. RED DEVILS OUT-ROUGH FLORA OUINTET, 48-22 Flora, jan. 27. Not being satisfied with the number of football trips they made, the Scar- let and Gray basketeers made a "foot- ball" trip to Flora and defeated the home team 48 to 22, while having 24 personal fouls called on them. While going down in defeat, the Flora five managed to get 19 fouls chalked up against them to make the roughest game of the season. Riley and Van Camp left the game on fouls, while Carlton Marsh, Laverne Marsh, Col- lins and Friend collected three apiece.

RED DEVILS WIN AS RIFLEMEN MISEIRE Lafayette, Feb. 8. After leading 23 to 18 at the half, the West Siders went on to down the Riley CSouth Bendj Riflemen, 41 to 27.

The absence of the Marsh brothers and Bob Riley, due to injury, proved too much for the weakened West Side quintet, when it was handed its fourth setback of the season by Winamac, 29-24. The tilt was a see-saw battle most of the way with the Winamac five taking their final advantage late in the third period. The largest ad- vantage throughout the game was six points, which the visiting quintet held when they took their final lead. Scoring honors for the losers went to Brady and Collins, who collected 8 and 6, respectively, while no other Red Devil scored more than two points. RED RAMBLERS ROUT DEVILS Without the services of L. Marsh and minus Bob Riley and Bob Van Camp for half the tilt, the West Side Red Devils wound up a very good bas- ketball season with their second con- secutive defeat at the hands of the Attica Red Ramblers, 30 to 28. The fray "see-sawed" in the first half with the Red Devils going out in front 14-13 at halftime and then taking a 23 to 13 advantage midway in the third period. With five minutes re- maining in the fray, the Devils led 27 to 18, when a single handed nine point drive by Beedle, Ramblers' guard, put the game on an even basis. The Attica five took their winning lead in the final minute of play to give the Red Devils their fifth defeat in eighteen starts. Attica, Feb. 24. 1 Xl P Plllill SEVEN
